  • @srinathmadusanka I agree with Jacob, it's clear what you're trying to do, but it's not clear why? What problem does this solve? Is there a reason you can't store this info in cookies or user meta?

  • To do what though? What are you using the query arguments for? Do they need to be in the URL? Why not store values with user and retrieve with get_user_meta(), or store in a session variable? Why do they have to be in the URL. Dec 7, 2017 at 3:03

add following code to functions.php,

add_action('wp_head', 'your_function');
function your_function(){
    if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
        $genre_url = add_query_arg('aff', '1234567', get_permalink());

Hope this will help you. for more information,

  • This isn't going to do anything. It's just setting the value of $genre_url to the permalink of the current post with a query arg, but the variable isn't used anywhere, and certainly isn't being added to the url. Also, get_permalink() will only be correct for single posts/pages. Category and date archives won't work because get_permalink doesn't get their URLs. you'd just get the URL to the first post in the archive. Dec 7, 2017 at 4:58
